Board of Supervisors Authorizes Use of ARPA Funds to Bolster Workforce Development Programming


GENESEO, N.Y., Nov. 9, 2022 – The Livingston County Board of Supervisors furthered its commitment to developing the County’s workforce as it recently authorized the use of $100,000 in American Rescue Plan Act funds to bolster training and professional programming.

With the costs of programming having increased significantly over the last two years, the County’s use of ARPA funds will allow it to continue to provide residents with state-of-the-art training for in-demand skilled positions.  

“I’m grateful to the Board of Supervisors for its investment in our County’s workforce,” stated Ryan Snyder, Director of Workforce Development in Livingston County.  “Despite rising costs, we’ve been able to stay ahead of the curve with impactful opportunities that provide Livingston County residents with top-notch training.”

The latest infusion of ARPA funds will be used to provide educational opportunities for careers that are currently facing critical staffing shortages.  Through the use of ARPA monies, the County intends to train 33 residents in field such as certified nursing assistants and registered nurses while also offering programming to help others earn their commercial driver’s license.

Snyder continued by adding that the Board’s decision to support professional development opportunities in the County will also play a role in helping to advance its own workforce.

“Many of the recipients of our funding are existing County employees at places like the Center for Nursing and Rehabilitation, the County Highway Department and Central Services,” he added.  “This investment will help to ensure that Livingston County is continually supporting the growth and development of its own staff in addition to that of its residents while building a highly-skilled and competent workforce.
